Snorri Magnússon is an Icelandic developmental therapist and a swimming teacher. He has a B.Sc degree in Sports Science and Social Education from the University of Iceland. Snorri is the one who introduced baby swimming to the Icelandic public in 1990. He has been the pioner regarding baby swimming and baby swimming education in Iceland.

Baby swimming is a purposeful stimulation and adjustment to water for infants 0-2 years old. It is suitble for children to start their lessons from the age of 3 months until 8 -9 months old. However it is possible to start earlier or later depending on the child.

The purpose of baby swimming can be for various reasons both for the child itself, parents and teachers.

  • To adjust the child to water as an envrionment of movement.
  • To give the child an outlet for it‘s need of movement and therefore stimulate it‘s strenght and pshysical development.
  • To adjust the child to a demanding environment wich has a stimulating affect on most of the child‘s senses.
  • To create an environment where the parents and child can increase and strengthen their bond.
  • To adjust the child to water and submergion, to increase self-esteem and their respect for water.
  • To make the child feel secure and happy in water.

Snorri‘s Baby swimming is located in Skálatúns‘s pool in Mosfellsbær, Iceland. See map here

It has been a priority to make sure that the quality of the swimming pool water is of the highest level at all times regarding both hygiene and purity.
The swimming pool is a round shape with curved stairs. The form of the pool makes baby swimming very convenient and enjoyable.
The facilities in the pool are good. There are changing – and shower rooms for the parents and changing tables and a small shower for the children. Seats for family members and friends are provided at the pool side to observe the class. Parking is free and there is pleanty of parking spaces.

Timetable

Snorri‘s Baby swimming is organized in the way that Snorri and the parents make a verbal agreement about each month of baby swimming lessons. The parents take two lessons a week with their child at a specific time. Each lesson is 60 minutes. Therefore there are 8-9 lessons on average every month and the monthly fee is ISK 16.000.
Parents decide for how long they want to continue with their lessons until the child is at the age of 12 months old. Snorri welcomes beginners at the age of 2-3 months old and usually no later than 8-9 months old. Snorri invites parents who are interested in taking lessons with their children to come and visit and observe one class and take a look at the facilities and see how Snorri teaches. Snorri will also give the parents easy preperation exercises to try at home.
Snorri tries to answere all emails, however all bookings are made by a phone call. Snorri will always call back if he happens to be busy at the time he receives a call. Snorri‘s phone number is (+354) 896-6695.

Vísindi og menntunSnorri Magnússon, Colwyn Trevarthen og Hermundur á góðri stundu. Colwyn er einn af þeim stóru innan þróunar sálfræði (developmental psychology). Hann var mjög hrifinn af ungbarna sundinu sem Snorri er með og skrifaði um það í bók sem hann kynnti á ráðstefnu í Edinborg. Í því tilefni bauð hann Snorra og Hermundi að hafa fyrirlestur. Snorra um ungbarnasundið og Hermundi um rannsóknir sem hann hefur gert á áhrifum ungbarnasunds á ungabörn. Rannsóknirnar sýna klárlega mikilvægi örvunar og áskoranna fyrir þróun barna. ...

Kæru foreldrar.

Vegna tilmæla frá því í dag frá Heilbrigðisráðuneytinu, Mennta- og Menningarmálaráðuneytinu sé ég mér ekki lengur fært á að bjóða upp á ungbarnasundskennslu á meðan þetta COVID-19 óvissuástand ríkir.

Ungbarnasund Snorra þarf því miður að loka tímabundið 😢

Hlakka til að sjá ykkur aftur sem fyrst!
